The Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat, has finally reacted to the death of his younger, Haroun Hamzat.
Naija News reports that Haroun died from COVID-19 complications on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. The 37-year-old Doctor worked in one of the public health centers in Orile Agege Local Council Development Area.
It was gathered that Dr. Hamzat tested positive for the dreaded virus and was rushed to the Infectious Disease Hospital in Yaba where he later died.
In a statement via his Twitter page on Saturday, the deputy governor described his younger brother as a hardworking and well-loved person.
According to Hamzat, his younger brother helped a lot of patients at the Lagos primary healthcare center in Orile, Agege.
He, however, appreciated the governor of the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for visiting his family over the death of Haroun.
He wrote: “This week I lost my 37 years old younger brother, Dr. Haroun Hamzat to #COVID19. He was hardworking and well-loved, helping a lot of patients at the Lagos primary healthcare centre in Orile, Agege.
“OVID19 does not respect anyone & this second wave is affecting across age groups.
“I thank Mr. Governor for visiting my family today and we discussed some of the things the state is doing to ensure our healthcare infrastructure can adequately serve the state.
“The first line of defence lies with you. Protect your friends and family by following our guidelines.”
